It is so important that we listen to people and think about life. If we do this we will recognise that we misunderstand so many things and so many people so much of the time.
You probably feel many people misunderstand you and that is probably true.
But remember in your thinking (and in mine) there are so many misunderstandings.
Often we don’t even understand ourselves but God understands and he cares.
The saddest thing is that we misunderstand God. You think maybe God loves you because that is His nature. It is His job to love people.
But true love is not a job description or a duty.
True love is driven by desire, the desire to do good to the one you love, the desire to bless the loved one, the desire to be in a close friendship with the loved one.
When you truly love someone, you desire to make that person happy, to keep him or her safe.
What will a good mother do to save her child from sickness, injury and death? What will a good mother sacrifice to save her child from danger, from hunger or from abuse?
This is how God loves you.
